Samsung Fascinate - Samsung Galaxy S Differences
All four major U.S. carriers, Verizon, AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile have gotten their own exclusive version of the Samsung Galaxy S phone series. Each one is the same when it comes to the operating system, Android 2.1, and they all feature the four inch Super AMOLED display, but they all differ in design and feature sets. So what sets the Verizon Samsung Fascinate apart from the other phones, the T-Mobile Vibrant, the AT&T Captivate and the Sprint Epic 4G?
The Samsung Fascinate, unlike its currently released brethren, will have LED flash, something that is severely lacking from the other Samsung Galaxy S phones. While the Vibrant and Captivate rely on night mode to capture scenes in the dark, the Fascinate has an LED flash to light up your pictures. We'll have to wait until it's released to see if there's that big of a difference. Another notable piece of the hardware design is that it will have a metallic body, unlike the other released versions of the Samsung Galaxy S which use plastic.
From the exclusive applications, Verizon will offer its usual set of Verizon specific applications, such as V-Cast, and VZ Navigator. There has been no news regarding any other games, movies or applications that will be offered exclusively on the Samsung Fascinate.
One item to note is that the Fascinate will be on Verizon's network. One feature unique to Verizon's network is the ability for their smartphones to be used as mobile hotspots. The Samsung Fascinate is no different, and is set to come with a feature and application that allows the user to use the phone as a mobile hotspot, able to hand out wireless connectivity to up to 5 devices.
